    yeah. that's pretty lame, at first I thought "ok" he calls it a sadowsky fender hybrid, but there's absolutely nothing sadowsky about that except the label he stuck on it and the knobs, and those might just be look a likes.

    With the refin and added parts alone, this guy has more than $399 invested in this thing. If he threw the American Standard in the trash when he got it, he'd be better off financially. Worst part is, if he didn't reshape the headstock, he'd probably get a lot more money for it.

    other than the corona neck plate I have doubts about it even being a US bass. if he's gonna try to pass it off as a sadowsky hybrid, I wouldn't put it past him to otherwise misrepresent the bass.
